This month in DC History
Kal found out he wasn’t the only full size survivor of Krypton when his cousin Kara showed up in 1959. As Kara’s rocket descended to Earth, Superman remembered the time when he as Superbaby arrived on his new planet… I’m not making that up. That’s what the book says. Anyway Supergirl appeared across several titles until she sacrificed herself in 1985 during that Crisis I wrote about last time I did a History lesson. She’s return, of course. Can’t keep a good girl down.
What else happened in 1959?
- The first Suicide Squad was formed but it wasn’t made up of a group of lovable miscreants from Belle Reve. No the first Suicide Squad was a band of World War II-era military misfits lead by Rick Flag and they appeared in the pages of The Brave and The Bold.
- Hal Jordan was introduced in October of this year. His first issue told the story of Abin Sur’s death, introduced Carol Ferris, and also showed the tension between’s Hal’s new duties and his personal life. There was no Hector Hammond and no Parallax but there was a 2nd issue… hmmm.
- Everyone’s favorite Batman villain Mr. Zero was introduced. You know Mr. Zero right? Likes ice puns, was the governor of California, wether you want him to or not he will be back. Oh I’m sorry, Mr. Zero was renamed Mr. Freeze in the 1960’s Batman show. I bet if they didn’t change his name a third of the puns from Batman and Robin would have had to be dropped.
I love when moments like this get captured on film. I always wonder what became of the people in them.. I bet they wouldn’t have guessed that half a century later people would still be admiring them. And think how important that kiss must have been to the both of them, to go to all the trouble. I hope to be kissed with such fervor someday. And I hope they made it.
